this perception that president obama has not had israel's interests front and center, and he seemed to succeed at that. in heretz this morning, they wrote, the most powerful man in the world arrived in the most threatened state in the world to promise love. hebrew, noted he spoke how much hebrew he used. and then at the end of his visit, brokered a phone call between prime minister netanyahu and the president of turkey, two countries that have been estranged since a turkish boat on the way to help gaza was attacked by israeli commandos? gwen: so, tom, is this like woody allen says, 90% of life is showing up? just the president showing up was enough to paper over or fix a lot of the problems existing? >> well, he said some really interesting things from the israeli point of view. one of the very interesting things was going to escape a lot of people's attention is he reaffirmed support not just for the state of israel but for the idea of zionism. that was important to the israelis. it seemed to me he nudged a little bit closer to israel's position vis-a-vis iran. but the perception that bothere

that obama did something, two good things. one, is to publicly recognize the jewish state and the roots of the jews and religion which was important for the rest of the world. >> sean: is that really so good? >> so for him to say that, it was a good things. and now, he wants the palestinians to recognize the jewish state. this is not going to happen. >> sean: i wanted to get your reaction? >> i spent a good amount of time in israel just over a month ago talking with their ministers and talking with the people. they are guarded. that is the only way i can say. they are guarded about american leadership and they understand our culture. we talk about the red line and who gives netanyahu the go ahead and does it meet the reality. net netted is going to have make the decisions he needs to make and he so get past that. get past the obama statements. get past the fact that we know that in 67 hamas was formed by the muslim brotherhood. he wants us to go back to '67 borders but it's not going to happen. >> the hamas charter still calls for the destruction -- >> look at the culture and look at th
and friends of ours, and so it's in the interest of the united states that they begin this process of getting their relationship back in order. >> warner: mr. obama had spent much of the day in israel and the west bank, visiting landmarks commemorating the history of the jews and one of christianity's s holiest treasures safeguarded by the palestinians. he had a few words when he got to yad vashem, the memorial to the six million jews murdered in the holocaust. >> here, on your ancient land, let it be said for all the world to hear: the state of israel does not exist because of the holocaust. but with the survival of a strong jewish state of israel, such a holocaust will never happen again. >> warner: the president then mr. obama was driven there through the israeli checkpoints and security wall separating israel from the west bank, after a sudden sandstorm grounded the president's chopper. it was perhaps a too-perfect metaphor for the tangled peace process he leapt back into this week. from there, it was a short flight to amman, capital of jordan, first arab state the president has visited s
disagree. nobody disagree? do you think for better or worse has obama made the situation in middle east better? raise your hand, worse? okay, why? >> he has presented an unclear message as to where the united states should be going and where the arab world is going and refused to call the jahadis an enemy and call for continuation of the war on terror. he refuses to use the word enemy and use jihad and engage in this war like the cold war is. >> sean: before we get everybody else's comments. remember georgetown university there was crucifixion, they covered that. remember. this is obama speaking and over him is a picture of a known terrorist. his name is yasser arafat. i wouldn't speak with a picture like that over my head, would you? >> i absolutely not. no criticism of this and except for sean hannity and the media is in his pocket. when you talk about if he has made the situation in the middle east worse and encouraged the rise of them, i would say absolutely. look at the policy at egypt. we get the muslim brotherhood a sworn enemy. look at libya, moammar khadafy had killed americans
and not be an advocate. the obama administration is shifting slowly, i cover now the state department, secretary kerry.er and they've gonee from saying, you know, syria is the congo to saying no, we have to, as kerrye says, change assad's calculation. and when-- i was on a trip with him recently.wi we went to sau arabia, and u.a. e., and he's talking about their efforts to armt rebels in an effort to change assad's calculation, and the reason this so concerns them is the posture of staying uninvolved has left the field to the most radical elements. so we're leaving afghanistan. , one hopes, without an al qaeda presence returning there. we're leaving iraq, really without al qaeda in iraq being strong. butqa the emergence of a terrort state or a state which has broken into pieces that ha aen terrorist component right on the board of border of israel would really be a terribly challenging situation. and so i think the americans are coming to it late, but they're-- they recognize that much of the problem. returning to iraq, the problem is iran, with maliki's concurrence, is arming the assad regime as fast
of the signing of president obama's landmark health care reform law. three years later and the bill is still under attack from republican lawmakers. but increasing number of states that previously opposed the law are now signing on to its medicaid expansion program, with some big surprise turnarounds from states like arizona, and florida. so that leads us to our question of the day for all of you. will obama care stand the test of time? talk to me on twitter. my handle is @alexwitt. and i will be reading some of your tweets throughout the day. a critical move by congress this week to delay furlough notices for hundreds of thousands of pentagon civilian employees. the house passed a bill thursday to extend funding for workers facing sequestration cuts. the measure gives the pentagon time to decide on how best to make those cuts. and joining me now is democratic congressman william enhart. thank you so much for being here, sir. i do appreciate that for this early hour. >> good morning, alex. >> i want to ask you about this whole situation. put it into context for us. how much of an impact does

[laughter] now one reason you may not have heard about it is that not the easiest trial to cover. first, because it's not really a trial. it's a one-of-a-kind military tribunal designed by president bush, implemented by president obama, and inspired by president kafka. [laughter] see, reporters are not allowed in the courtroom. they have to watch the trial from behind soundproofed glass and hear the proceedings on a 40-second delay. and to protect national security, the judge or a security officer in the courtroom can hit a mute button which shuts off the audio to the reporters and indicates this by making a red light on the judge's ben
